Eden turns back the clock for Seniors Week

19 March 2012

Eden Fishermen’s Recreation Club will step back into the 1950s later this week when it hosts one of the highlights of 2012 Seniors Week.

Minister for Ageing and Member for Bega, Andrew Constance, said The Dora Fay Davenport Show is expected to attract a packed audience on Saturday (24 March).

“The show is one of the last of 900 events held throughout the state in this year’s Seniors Week,” Mr Constance said.

“The NSW Government allocated more than $188,000 to help groups stage local events in cities and regional and rural areas.

“More than 250,000 seniors have attended those events while 30,000 also enjoyed this week’s Premier’s three Gala Concerts at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

“Seniors Week is now in its 54th year and continues to be the biggest seniors’ event in the southern hemisphere.”

Seniors attending Saturday’s show in Eden will be transported back to 1957 and the set of a fictitious live-to-air interactive television lifestyle show. They in fact become the studio audience.

Tickets are available by phoning Eden Fishermen’s Recreation Club on 6496 1577.
